"I'm going to graduate in less than 2 years...
I'm so excited! And at the same time I'm scared. 
I'm planning to go to college and I know that I'll have to be more independent. Also, I've noticed the people on DA who have announced going to college; times after, they almost never upload anything anymore. Then comes work, which is just as time-consuming. That makes me wonder... are the majority of us constant, active deviants teenagers?
Perhaps DA becomes no longer effective with people once they pursue their dream job (involving a certain ground of art) that they can get paid for doing what they love. I might be on that path. 
I like doing fanart and fanfiction, and getting great feedback for it, but I'm also an original artist and I think that I should limit my creative ideas on my fanart and leave the best of it for my original work that I plan to unfold soon- once I know which choice is best for me to do so."

That was what I wrote almost a year ago. Now I'm doing what my past self had predicted.
As far as I can see, I'm finally done with all of the questions.
If you guys hadn't noticed, I started to lag a bit in the descriptions and not being as chatty about the drawings as I used to. I just didn't find them fun to do anymore, it felt more like work.

Also, I won't be uploading too often anymore since all of my inspirations for fanart are dead. I don't know if any will be revived long enough for me to make one drawing every few weeks to a month, I just don't know. My inspiration of my art has gone over to the original side where it is not safe for me to upload it to DA, since I'm worried that someone will steal it. I'm going to be graduating from high school sooner than I think, and I want to make money off of what I am currently building up. 
Sorry for sounding so secretive, but DA is just not a place for original artwork that is being planned on for profit. Not even half of our fancharacters are safe from thieves on this site.

So, thank you all for supporting my fanart while I was really into it. I had a lot of fun doing it, and overall it was a pleasant experience. :)
I'm not going to deactivate my account because I never know what may happen to me in the future. I just might have a sudden spark of fanart inspiration without seeing it coming, and it would suck if I had already shut away from DA.

Thanks for reading. :)

Journal History


artsicat13's Profile Picture
Artist | Hobbyist
United States
I am an anthropomorphic fanartist and a throwback artist "because I'm late like that" :XD:
My favorite art tool is MS Paint (been drawing with it since 2009); now I'm also trying to get used to Photoshop, a more modern art tool.
I am a semi-fanfiction writer, since I usually add drawings that define each divided section of it.

However, I DO NOT TAKE REQUESTS. I've been asked this question so many times and I have nowhere else to put this message.

Srry to bother you artsi but its just a MS paint question.
Can you make layers on it or do you just have to use the eraser tool?
artsicat13 Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2015  Hobbyist
I use layers. I only use the eraser tool to erase stray marks and smoothen raggedy edges.
